try house of color or local car paint place ( most good ones can custom mix you up some and then put it in a aerosol can for you if you need it )

 

I got some colors in my head right now Im gonna go for it...I used that orange on a lot of cars lol

Great looking build so far. I need to pull this kit out and start building.

So many kits that I need to build before I can't.
